We have been keeping busy in the past weeks before starting works on Lowther Hill. Here are some of the most relevant jobs we have been doing...

In Wanlockhead, ski club volunteers led by our Rab Paul fine tuned the ski tow pylons...

... while in Leadhills our engine hut was disassembled, ready to be taken to Lowther Hill...

... and we received a portacabin kindly donated by Dumfries-based engineering firm Clark Tracks, which will be of great service as a temporary clubhouse until our timber clubhouse is finally built on Lowther Hill in 2015.

On Lowther Hill, civil engineering contractor Chalmers Construction kindly set out the ski tow line for us...

... and we started mowing the tall grass on the Lowther Hill ski slope to provide a better skiing experience.

We also spoke with Leadhills' Fire and Rescue and Moffat Mountain Rescue Team about safety aspects of our operations on the hill.

And spoke to the press, which still has not lost their interest on this inspirational project to bring skiing back to Lowther Hill. See a few articles on The Times, The Herald, Mpora, and In The Snow mag, amongst others. The Ski Club also appeared on BBC Scotland and ITV Borders



The Lowther Hills Ski Club is run entirely by volunteers. The Club holds work parties to maintain our equipment and run the ski tows. If you would be willing to give us a hand at any work meets please get in touch.
